We have been staying at this Budget Inn for several months now and I don't have the first complaint. Improvements are impressive and ongoing. The front office staff, housekeeping and maintainance staff couldn't be nicer or more adept at their jobs. Maintenance issues are taken care of quickly and everything happens with a smile. Cant beat the view from the...

I went here for a night and it was TERRIBLE... the outside smelled of marijuana and trash. My room was extremely filthy. The tub wasn't cleaned, our room had spills EVERYWHERE, it even had a dried up throw up stain on the carpet. It looked as if no one even tried to clean up. When I asked for another room,...
